Vegan Chia Waffles

With spring approaching it is time for brunches and…. waffles. I bought this great all-clad waffle maker a few years ago that makes thin, crispy waffles. This is a very basic vegan recipe that tastes fantastic -- a slight sweetness to it, crisp and tasty. It can be altered with walnuts nuts, blueberries or cacao nibs  (mixed in the dry ingredients). They also freeze well. 

Vegan Chia Waffles (makes 6 waffles)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 TB chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup nondairy milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 ts vanilla extract
  • 1/4 ts liquid stevia
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl, and mix the wet ingredients in a different bowl. Combine and mix until the waffle dough is without lumps.

Preheat waffle iron (typically, a green light goes on). Now spray with nonstick baking spray (it has some flour in it) (or wipe down with some oil). Cook waffles according to the waffle maker's instructions, which usually means putting about 1/4 cup batter on the iron, closing, and waiting for a light to go out. I baked mine longer than the light signal (about 4 min altogether so that they are on the crispy side). 

Make 6 waffles using 1/4 cup of waffle dough. 1 waffle, 90kcal.
